5th Grade Students Take CHKS Survey March 9th

5th grade students are being asked to be a part of our school’s California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), sponsored by the California Department of Education (CDE). 6th Grade students at Dana do NOT take this survey.

This is a very important survey that will help promote better health and well-being among our youth, improve the school learning environment, and combat problems such as drug abuse and violence. Your child does not have to take the survey. Participation is voluntary.
